How to remove an infected file COMPLETELY from the quarantine?

I’m a Norton antivirus user. I just plugged in my buddy’s old USB device in my laptop and Norton immediately picked up a threat called “PUA.Keygen.KMS”. It said the threat severity is medium. I pressed the “fix” option in the given menu and Norton announced everything is fixed.

I couldn’t be too sure, so i went in and checked the security history. The status of the infected file is “Quarantined” and there’s a restore option in that same page. Which should probably mean the infected file is still somewhere safely contained in Norton Jail. What i wanna do now is, completely remove that darn thing from my laptop! They let you remove the entry, but there’s no option to REMOVE IT FROM QUARANTINE! Looked everywhere. Anybody knows how to do that?

I don’t know what this file is, and I don’t want my system infected with malwares!
